Mercedes CL-class (C216)

B the coupe version of S-class, CL-class shares the same platform, suspensions, powertrains, and safety equipments with the Although some 80mm has chopped from the wheelbase and 2 have been discarded, the CL is any lighter than S-class. In for reasons only Mercedes it is actually 55 kilograms heavier, so any for superior performance or handling is unrealistic.

Then why are there many people buy the C L. well, most people love coupes. If you already have an in your garage, it won’t be a bad to have a CL next to it. In this you can let your wife to drive the and yourself to enjoy the niche delivered by the coupe. CL coupe is all style. If it look beautiful, it be highly successful. If not, no one buy it. This matches my observation the past 20 years – the most CL in history is also the most CL of all, the C126 series from 1981 to 1991 by then it was referred to SEC instead of A total of 74,000 units sold. In contrast, its successor, series, sold only coupes from 1992-98 it looked so bulky and ugly. came the last generation series. It looked okay, stylish than C140 but not as as C126, so 46,800 units sold from 1999-2006.

Having known that, one can see that Mercedes-Benz must its best to design the new generation CL, the series. Is it successful. mostly Mercedes CL is very different fr om Continental GT, its slightly pricier Its styling is feminine and civilized, in to Bentley’s classical and muscular. The are not elegant enough (leaves for improvement to AMG?), but the sleek is quite attractive. The banana-shaped profile has some CLS in it. The large windows remain a classic of CL-class – thanks to the lack of and window frames, it delivers side view and an airy not found in other coupes what a contrast to the confined in Bentley Continental GT.

Inside, some people may be that it shares the same dashboard with S-class. there is nothing wrong the build quality and materials, is top notch. The same goes for the air cushioning and ventilated front Without doubt, the front provide abundance of space all so that no one can complain. The rear are also the most accommodative in the world. This means a can sit comfortably behind another Bentley can only dream that. The Mercedes also superior luxury equipments, as a 4-zone climate control individual adjustment for each COMMAND in-car control / system and PRE-SAFE system, tightens seatbelts, closes and even applies braking in prior to collision. In terms of and safety, no other coupes can the CL.

Mercedes offers two larger from the S-class for serving the CL – 388hp 5.5-liter V8 and 517hp 5.5-liter V12. They can CL500 (or CL550 in the USA) and from zero to sixty mph in 5.2 and 4.4 seconds respectively. Unquestionably, is an autobahn rocket. It can out-accelerate 911 Carrera S at any speed up to 155 mph, at point only the speed deny it from the ultimate Nevertheless, the most sensible buy is whose large capacity V8 is enough for effortless performance most Mercedes drivers ask Moreover, at £80,000, it falls in a without any direct competitors. In the £106,000 CL600 has to compete with the £118,000 Bentley GT. The CL600 might be faster, but the feels more special in its and craftsmanship.

As expected, the CL is highly refined in its The powertrain is smooth and barely Noise insulation is excellent. quality scores top marks. once again successfully its car ride like a magic without hurting handling, to the second generation Active Control. ABC uses adaptive spring struts to increase stiffness during cornering. The generation system reduces roll, pitch and dive more effectively than the generation, resulting in a flat In twisty roads, you must be that the CL feels much nimble than its 5-meters and 2-ton weight suggest. it does not feel like a sports coupe, because the environment is detached from the The steering is light and remote as it too hard to insulate road from the driver’s hands.
